This spring, Primary Care Respiratory Update comes to you with a new focus on asthma. Our contributor bring you pragmatic and succinct information that you can adopt in your practice to support early diagnosis, improved management, reduced reliance on short-acting bronchodilator inhalers and advice on managing patients with severe asthma.
PCRS has looked to the latest Global Initiative for Asthma (GINA) approach to asthma treatment to see how the new dual (ICS/Formoterol) combination treatment option for people aged 12 fits in the treatment and this issue features a simple algorithm for healthcare practitioners that we have developed.
This issue of PCRU also includes a practical guide to delivering an asthma review in just 10 minutes and feedback from three patients one of whom describes their asthma review which is conducted solely by an online form – not something recommended by PCRS.
This issue of PCRU introduces our latest pragmatic guide on severe asthma which guides you through this process ensuring the right patients end up in the right place with the right care.
Also in this edition, there has been a major shift in how COPD is assessed and classified announced by GOLD. Fiona Mosgrove takes you through the implications of these changes and for anybody writing or updating their local guidelines this will be invaluable reading.
Hear from Katherine Hickman, Chair of the PCRS Executive, who is this issue's Guest Editor and be sure to read the tributes to Katherine's predecessor, Carol Stonham.
